Kollmorgen, Faux, and Rosborough helping UMHB women’s hoops to success after making NCAA Tournament debuts
LEXINGTON, Kentucky- The UMHB women’s basketball team has been here before. In fact, the previous two times the NCAA Tournament has been held, the Crusaders have reached the Round of 16. But those teams were different from this year’s squad in one way: experience.
Veteran-laden teams in 2019 and 2020, the Cru had multiple seniors coming off both the bench and in the starting lineup. That is not the case on this year’s squad, which is made up of several young standouts, and features just four players who played on the last tournament team in 2020.

No buzzer-beating shots, or late scoring runs necessary. UMHB earned the 55-46 victory, its 16th straight, and moved to 14-0 in ASC play.

BELTON, Texas- The UMHB women’s basketball team was shorthanded on Monday night, but that is where the unique depth of the Crusaders comes into play.
